No issues, there have been only a couple riders since we started. I think that was just a heads up to let people know that it's been groomed.
Truth is, we started grooming too late and it never got fully packed. The sled does an ok job, but really needs traffic to get it the rest of the way, so starting in February with no trail at all, and trying to get it packed with no traffic didn't quite work. The single digit temps over the last few weeks didn't help either.
As the temps rise, the trail will melt and firm up even more, and I imagine the riders will get out. But as the aforementioned Facebook post alludes to, if you are leaving ruts that others are going to have to deal with, whether they be in the snow or mud, maybe that's not the best time to be out. Although the snow ruts will melt away soon enough, the same general rules should apply as in the spring freeze/thaw mud season which is right around the corner.
